with this story that is happening right now. the government has continued it's vendetta against big banks. the government accuses the mortgage lender of reckless trifecta issuing at least 100,000 affected loans. this story comes as the cnbc.com story makes headlines. the question is why is the government and the taxpayor still in the housing business? let's go to our guest. diana, good evening. >> well look, confidence in housing is coming back. especially in home prices. some say they think home prices will fall further. optimism has been rising for 11 straight months. you don't have to look farther than record low mortgage rates. some claim it is a government subsidy. there are short sales. it is fast becoming the exit of choice for banks and sellers. they are now moving faster thanks to government mandated streamlining and incentives. hofa has so far paid out $333 million for short sales part of the $10 billion that was set aside for the loan modification program. also pushing short sales so far under that program the banks have forgiven $8.67 billion in mortgage debt. that is tax free
." and too late. if you haven't got your application in, it is too late. bank of england government job should have been in half an hour ago. so if you didn't make it, you're not going. jim o'neill wasn't applying, scott mcdonald wasn't applying either. i didn't get mine in. so never mind. stick here. also coming up, we'll be heading to new delhi to hear how undoing regulatory requirements could boost investments. details from one of the author of the quarterly cfo survey. and also president chavez is fig celebrating a hard-fought victory. if you have any thoughts, comments, whatever you like, e-mail us worldwide@cnbc.com or tweet @cnbcwex or @rosswestgate. first we'll turn our attention to china. analysts say there is hope the mainland services sector can help offset weakness in the manufacturing side. hsbc also says early easing measures and stronger consumption demand may have helped world bank is warning it needs to brace for slow growth. it's their slowest pace since 2001. it's because of the exposure to china which also had its outlook cut. joining uses for more, norman chan. norm
to directly capitalize the banks. >> the perceived commitment of eurozone governments to mutualize the cost of spanish bank programs have been put into question very much so and should be rejected fairly clearly by core european finance ministers. and we think this is a destabilizing factor in the country's credit outlook. so the question is what pressure that might put on its italian auction today. they're selling up to 6 billion in july btb. we did see t-bills yields edging higher for italy. has already raised, though, 80% of the 465 billion needed to fund the 12012 outstanding debt. but those auction results will be out in just over an hour's or so time. >> even for the impact on spanish bonds, when people look and wonder perhaps why there isn't more impact, it's not just because this move is largely priced in. it's also because the ownership has been transitioning to domestic. so certainly at any time a healthy development itself. >> we also have data coming out, as well, spanish banks borrowing 400 billion euros in the ecb in september. 412 billion euros in august. so that number is st
there as tensions between the two countries intensify. the u.s. government suing the nation's biggest mortgage lender. we'll take a look at how the global industry is faring. then it's off to paris. the stricken car maker is downgraded by moody's a day after demonstrators stage protests. we'll have details from the french capital. and we'll head to new york where there's an appetite for young, profits that is, up nearly a quarter from a year earlier. we'll take a look on a big day for earnings on wall street. and a big week that's coming up. joining us now onset, though, bob mckey. bob, you're here with us, chief economist from independent strategy. i guess let's just begin by talking a little bit about some of these headlines that we're hearing from the imf regarding financial stability. obvious, i guess, to sort of draw attention to this issue, but in your mind, is there still lingering risk out there from the lack of reform, i guess, in some areas of the industry? >> i think what the global stability report is showing -- it's the third report the imf brings out at this semiannual meeting. e
is she coming now, why didn't she visit the two previous governments? because she knows hostility towards her is extremely high. remember for the better part of the last three or four year, she was seen as a scapegoat for the tough austerity measures that have been implemented here and that has led to the deep, deep recession in this country. well, she wants to send a message of support and solidarity about the reform efforts that have already been taken. but privately she'll be pressuring to say you have to continue with the reform efforts and we're not coming with any gifts. we'll make no further concessions. that will be her tough message as she comes here today. back over to you. >> what's interesting is that maybe the timing of this visit there seems to be imf saying we need to have a maybe pretty big did you tell forgiveness. how hard will that be for the germans and fins and dutch? >> i think politically impossible. i think they're warm up to the notion in a they need to give greece more time. but that means money. that money has to come from somewhere. it certainly won't come from
the government out of the housing market. that's all ahead on the "closing bell." if we want to improve our schools... ...what should we invest in? maybe new buildings? what about updated equipment? they can help, but recent research shows... ...nothing transforms schools like investing in advanced teacher education. let's build a strong foundation. let's invest in our teachers so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. >>> all right. we got more situations developing. yum brands out with earnings. to jane wells. she's got the latest on yum brands. over to you. >> yeah, maria. you had it right going into the break. they did beat the street on the bottom line, coming in at 99 cents, excludeing special items. that's up 19% from a year ago. the top line came in a little light. the street was looking for $3.65 billion. the real story is what's happening in china. they reported an operating loss in china last quarter. this time, as promised, they have returned to double-digit profit growth with the china system sales increasing 22%. same store sales increasing 6%. now this is a slowdown
governments not-for-profits. i know we bank churches. i just don't know the actual numbers. i'd be happy to share with them if you sen me ad me an e-mail. that's what we do, advise people, what's reasonable and not reasonable. a lending business, banks, unlike other institutions, often has to say no. sometimes we say we're not going to do it and it is not good for you, either. like selling someone too much liquor or letting them have that fifth drink at the bar. send me an e-mail. >> taking a slightly broader answer to that question, take a minute, talk about your definition -- here you are this large organization, you have enormous profits. what is your sense of corporate social responsibility? what sort of program -- what does jpmorgan define for itself -- >> i've never had a conflict over this. my job is to build a healthy, vibrant company. and i want -- in every community you operate in, including greece, italy and spain, for to you think we're a good corporate citizen. no different -- i really mean this -- than that corner store. that corner store participates in the community, they
that ensued. i'm not the first person to question the government numbers and hopefully i won't be the last. and he references someone who's criticized him a lot, which is rich austin golsby, our guest friday morning after the jobs report. jack mentioned a op ed in "the new york times" back in 2003, and in that piece, goolsbee spells it out. in other words, the government has cooked the books. when people serve manager the military were classified from not in the labor force to employed in order to reduce the unemployment rate. nonetheless, the impact has been the same. he was making the point that there was a jobless recovery that came later because they had notless the unemployment rate rise to the level where it would have been normally. and jack is going to join us at 8:00 eastern. the people that we've had have talked about jack have just pointed out, look, it's at 7.8 for whatever reason. you've got part-time workers. all these census workers call people and find out whether they're working. if you've done anything in the last month, you could theoretically call them part-time. >> if
the relationship between this corporation is and the chinese government. it's been a key question. but for all of the questioning, a lot of it is conjecture. this aren't that many hard facts here, something i did ask chairman rogers about earlier today. >> we've had information from former and current huawei employees. we have both classified information. our foreign partners, australians and the british and others have passed along information they've seen whether it comes to huawei's activities which i think is a very clear indication i have no problem saying i would not use huawei equipment. i'd find other vendors. if you care about your consumer's data and the national security of the united states you need to look elsewhere. >> of course if you do believe, as i do, given my reporting on it, that the chinese are incredibly aggressive when it comes to cyber espionage, sue, and then you believe much wlaf of what is in this report, you certainly come to the conclusion if there is a telecommunications company that's becoming somewhat dominant around the globe that has the backing of or certain
're at right now. so what you're doing is a government telling you that there will be inflation, we're going to keep interest rates very low. what that does, it encourages corporations to invest. the corporation sitting there with $2 trillion on their balance sheets and what they have to do, they have to invest to create jobs. the government is saying you can leave it there and wait for a disaster, but if you do, it will go down in value 4% every year and, therefore, encourage people to lower the dollar. that makes products worth more. so we're trying to encourage people to build products and plants. >> we had lloyd blankfein and simpson and bowles talking about the fiscal cliff. this is what lloyd blankfein had to say. >> i'd be a buyer of the market. goldman sachs would -- we not only value company, we're a company ourselves. we would be assuming that our business would grow, that companies would be making more acquisitions, more investments, more gfinancings. and we would have to make sure that we could provide those advice and those services. >> what do you make of that? >> i think goldm
, such as reducing government regulations and spending more to retrain workers. if the republicans say the government shouldn't spend, how the heck are we going to get ourselves out of this? >> no, no, this notion that the government has no role has never been true in the history of the united states. you know, really, all of the commercial aviation industry has grown out of defense spending. all of the health care innovation has grown out of the n.i.h. >> in his ten years as ceo, immelt has remade g.e., selling off half the company he inherited, including plastics, insurance, and nbc. >> oh, my god. >> they're selling nbc to a company called kabletown... with a "k." >> at the same time, he has refocused the company on manufacturing, bulking up units like transportation, energy, and research and development. as jobs czar, he's urging his fellow ceos to double their hiring of engineers and devote more money to r&d. at g.e., he's triple-spending on everything from medical research to green technology, including the building of a solar panel factory in the u.s., even as other american solar companies ar
, would this prevent emergency actions by the state government? there's some descriptions about school districts, small towns going bankrupt, even detroit. would this prevent any of those emergency actions? >> well, it would make it very challenging. in fact, we have an emergency manager law used, but when it's used it's a major help to prevent bankruptcies and other challenges. that's also on the ballot. this would override that and leave us in a spot where communities might have bankruptcy as an option, and that's a very bad answer. >> governor, let me just ask you, what are the mechanics of this thing? in other words, if they get collective bargaining as a matter of state constitutional rights, does that undo all of your reforms as you call it to the michigan comeback? does that give the unions power even over the state legislature? is it that bad? >> it would in many aspects take us back in time and give a lot of power to unions in terms of the negotiating process and really wipe out a lot of benefits we have. we're the comeback state. we've gone through tough recessions before. we
, a lot of government jobs added. but for some reason, i've always been told you need 200 to 250 to make a dent. 114 got a 300 basis point drop? it's crazy. and there's a reason -- you know what they're calling people that are saying this. they're calling help truthers. throwing them in with the birthers. >> i don't believe that there was conspiracy to make the jobs number -- >> i know that. and anyone that says that will be called a truther. so you don't say the government's lying. you can't say that. yet if you add in two months more government workers than at any it time since 1948 for the past two months, the government can do -- >> but that goes to his point the u-6 number is -- i don't know if it's more accurate. >> it's broader and takes in to account the part-time workers that don't want to be part-time. they want the full-time job. so it's a broader measure of giving us the breadth of the labor market and the health of it and that's why when i say the unchanged number, i sort of ignored the headline number and didn't think it was that big of a deal. >> normally we'd focus on the
have partnerships between industry and government. we are doing a great deal of collaborative work together. what we really need to do is insent vise greater investment. right now all the incentives are on the side of the attackers. >> what other incentive do you need than to protect yourself from a cyber attack? >> you have to protect yourself not just from any cyber attack. we're doing a great deal on that. private sector investment in protecting themself has doubled over the past five years to $80 billion a year. the department of homeland security is $59 billion in comparison. what we're talking about is defending them against nation state attacks. individual companies are never going to be in a place they can all by themselves defend against a nation state attack. so for that, we need an additional sort of collaboration such as is indicated in the bipartisan bill that was passed through the house of representatives that would have created greater liability protections that would have allowed private industry to share information with the government much more affirmatively and
in power coming up in china. typically there is inaction on the part of the government in terms of huge programs where it be stimulus or not. many expect you may not get something substantive still march. there's also a great deal concern about the financial system. you hear it a lot. we all talk about the lack of validity of many of the statistic that is we still rely on. but within the financial system itself, where the debt really is, a number of metrics that are followed and thought to be worthy of following are not looking great. there's continued concerned. >> we're running smack into -- our companies have to tell the truth. but there's a huge cohort of companies in our company that don't need a whole lot of growth. so we're funneling into winners and leaving aside cyclicals as losers. >> world bank goes from 8.2 to 7.7. if you think 5 to 6 is the real number, should we be bracing for more -- >> yeah. look, these guys want to do everything incremental but the data's bad. i saw someone recommending gm today on strength of china sales. everyone wants to get ahead of the turn. but no
government austerity cuts. pensioners clashed with riot police and burned an eu flag. german chancellor angela merkel is scheduled to arrive in athens at about 6:30 eastern time today for a six hour visit. police banned protests in most of central athens and 6,000 officers are trying to keep control. this is merkel's first stop will greece since the debt crisis kree resulted back in 2009. and carolyn roth will be joining us live. >>> and both president obama and mitt roy in will be in ohio today. voters in the swing state are getting their last chance to register for next month's election. the polls are now all over the map. pew has romney up four points, but gallup says the positive jobs report gave president obama a five point boost. among our guests, ken langone and donald trump. and focusing on issues of foreign policy and national security, we have senator john mccain. and by the way, if you went to sleep early last night, the texans beat the jets 23-17. this win brings the texans perfect record this season to 5-0. we will have more in squawk sports. first andrew has the morning's
. >> at the risk of pissing you off, what would you say to them? >> tell them we have a leaderless government and he can lead. this gentleman can't govern. he's doing politics day and night. >> erskine bowles, same question to you. if had a chance to advise obama and biden on what you want to hear about the deficit and the fiscal cliff, what would you tell them to say? are you not hearing now? >> to lead. lead from the front. just take on this enormous problem we have with economic growth. the best way to take that on is to reform the tax code, broaden the base, simplify the code, wipe out these tax expenditures and use that money to reduce rates, to encourage growth, and also to bring down the deficit. that's really attacked these entitlement problems. slow the rate of health care. make social security sustainably solvent. we can't afford to spend more in the next 17 largest countries and then to take that money and some of it invest it and let's invest it in those things that america has to invest in to be competitive globally. >> i would say those same things to the candidate of my party.
bear sterns. this is about fha-insured mortgages that the government says that wells fargo was misrepresenting to get fha insurance on these mortgages for a period of some ten years. they say about $190 million worth of mortgages may have been misrepresented, essentially ripping off the taxpayers for this fha insurance. under the law, the government could recover triple damages. this is a $570 million suit against wells fargo. we're following it. we'll teep you posted. back to you. >> just off the lows, scott, thank you very much. we're heading toward the close, otherwise, with about 30 minutes left. the dow down 100 points at this hour. when we come back, we look at the health of wall street. new york state comptroller on the looming -- whether the looming fiscal cliff and increasing regulation are threatening wall street's comeback these days. plus, speaking of which, nearly half of all wall streeters are expecting a bigger bonus this year. will they get it in and more importantly, do they deserve it? that debate is coming up. and from bull market speed bump to chaos. bre
with individual companies or with governments and central banks. that's the so-called micro, the companies, and the macro, which are the governments. so we've got a flat line here, okay? that's how every day starts. of course, something does happen every day, which is why we are almost never flat, typically on days where central government or banks squawk some sort of data. so let's just presume we're never going to be in zero. then we get to earnings season and the equation changes dramatically. we get really granular. we extrapolate the heck out of each and every earnings report to see where the averages are headed. so consider the box score from one 24-hour sports cycle, using the parlance of football. why not? it's football season. it will be easy for everybody. here is the playoff play. first we get earnings last night from yum! brands, parents of taco bell and pizza hut, and it is dynamite. yum is putting up restaurants all around the world. and why not, they have two million restaurants per million in the merging versus 58 per million here in america. china didn't slow as much as we
the government deficit topped $1 trillion once again. the treasury says the deficit was roughly 7% of gdp and, larry, the nobel peace prize goes to the eu. the nobel committee gave the prize to the european union acknowledging the 27 blocks advancement and a peace and reconciliation and i know a lot of people think this is ridiculous, but when you think about the history there and the fact that these countries 100 years ago and what they're doing is hard, maybe it's a reminder. >> they should have given them to them 70 years ago and this is the wrong time and i'll talk about that with my pal jimmy pathkuke as. >> my only personal view is it's a ridiculous thing so i've asked cnbc contributor jim pathkukas to come back. at this moment in time with the growth of welfare states and socialism and bankruptcy and bailouts i wouldn't give the european union an award of any kind. what this k this nobel peace prize people be possibly thinking? >> given what you just said and the fact, the eu could still break apart and maybe this is like a parting gift when people are on a game show and given a partin
to create 7 million jobs. now, we think that government taking 28% of the family and businesses income is enough. look if you taxed every person in successful small business making over $250,000 at 100%, it would only run the government for 98 days. if everybody who paid income taxes last year doubled their income taxes this year, we'd still have a $300 billion deficit. you see, there aren't enough rich people and small businesses to tax to pay for all their spending. the next time you hear them say don't worry about it, we'll get a few wealthy people to pay their share, watch out middle class the tax bill is coming to you. that's why we're saying, we need fundamental tax reform. take a look at it this way, eight out of ten businesses file their taxes as individuals not as corporations. where i come from oversees, lake superior, the canadians, they dropped their tax rates to 15%. the average tax rate on businesses in industrialized world is 25% and the president wants the top effective tax rate on successful small businesses to go above 40%. two-thirds of our jobs come from small busin
founder and what the real role is of the chinese government in terms of potential control of this company. >> no, those are also fair points. there is no role of the chinese government in the company. the committee knows full and very well that when they visited our facilities, that they actually had access to the entire list of all 65,000 of our employee shareholders. look, this industry -- the committee is focused on cyber security concerns. those are very legitimate concerns. but, the fact of the matter is, it's a global industry. hauwei, cisco, eriksson, nokia se seimens operating on a common stage with overlapping -- there are cyber concerns but they are universal. anything short of universal solutions is nothing but political gamesmanship. >> i've done a lot of reporting on it. it goes back to the chinese, broadly speaking, to spy, usually using the internet on u.s. corporations and to steal their secrets wherever they may be and whatever way the chinese can. many say about hauwei, in fact, it came from virtually nothing as a result of today because of stolen intellectual property.
was the top of that. when they decided that joel klein representing the u.s. government in anti-trust when they decided he was one more civil servant, that was the top. government plays for keeps, and never mess with the person who works because they care, i suppose, for the money. >> unlimited check and a lot of lawyers. >> one certain wells fargo lawsuit? >> i thought that was a very -- wells fargo, i think the world of management there has stunk but michael corleone explained to us earlier when he saw that man blow himself up in cuba you cannot go against people who play for free and care, that was still one more great business lesson from the godfather, the greatest business movie of all-time, "godfather ii" the good to great, great to better. "you broke my heart." >> we'll talk more about wells and get more clarity on the quarter, david, coming up on friday. >> yes. >>> meantime after surging 40% this year, home depot getting a downgrade. we'll talk to the analyst making that call. >>> also ahead wall street and main street waiting for apple's mini version of the ipad. does it have so
, jpmorgan boss jamie dimon said the government should bank jpmorgan for bailing out bear stearns. i asked john mccain if he agreed with that. >> i don't thank mr. dimon for anything. i think the major firms on wall street did very, very well by doing good. the profits are at an all time high. the dodd-frank bill was to make institutions never again to be too big to fail. are you telling me mr. dimon isn't too big to fail is this so it's been a disaster. mr. dimon has done very well. >> do you agree with sandy weill that the big universal bank model is a failed model and that perhaps big banks should be broken up? >> i'm not sure they should be broken up, but we on ought to go looking, see what we did with dodd-frank, allegedly the purpose of it was that no institution would ever be too big to fail. does anybody believe that? of course not. >> you can catch the rest of that interview a little bit later in the program. i also did ask senator mccain about the looming fiscal cliff, tax rates and how he thinks bernanke has performed so well. you won't want to miss it. giles is still with us an
potentially from higher taxes and indeed reduced government spending. >> rick santelli, you heard that whole list of reasons. is that why we saw this ten-year auction today? people gobbling up ten-year government debt at these extremely low yields because they think they're not going to get much better elsewhere? sounds like people don't think there's a lot of growth coming. >> i think there's a little bit of truth in all of it. i'll bring up another point. i think october, a lot of mutual funds ahave the end of their fiscal year. it's been a good run for stocks. the spread between what the stock market is telling us and the economy is pretty wide. the election, depending how it turns out, could have a lot of implications. to me, it makes perfect sense the closer we get to the end of the year, the closer we get to november, people are going to be lightening up. it all makes sense. >> yeah, and mandy, you were highlighting earlier oil is lower, gold is lower. a lot of the base materials have been suffering as well today. >> yeah, that's absolutely true. you know, i think what's also interesti
the government-run health care system. these look like very attractive sectors to me in view of what's coming politically in less than four weeks. >> until you called the election tonight, larry, i didn't know which way it was going to go. but now that you've explained that romney is going to win, then, yes, those are the sectors that i want to buy. but, larry, we still have problems here. we still have this congress whose approval rating is as low as it's ever been and deservedly so. i think these guys are still skating by. i think they're still overrated. without leadership here -- >> let me -- larry, you're absolutely right the doom and gloom coming out of the imf is totally wrong. there are plenty of pockets of strength. you have a picture distorted by a few bad apples, like the spanish who got everything wrong. the southern european welfare states are dying. but china's doing well. germany's exports -- china's were up 10% year over year in august. >> the doom and gloom is not wrong yet. >> germany's exports -- the u.s. are up 15% year-on-year. the people who know how to do things right s

as deepening economic recession and limiting the government's policy options to stop the slide. and italy sold 2.9 billion of three year bonds that it no longer issues on a regular basis. that's the top of it targeted amount. kelly evans will join us with more in a few minutes. christine lagarde is calling for urgent action. ties are similar. >> very similar. >> to tackle the european debt crisis and spur sluggish growth. she praised recent steps but said no more needs to happen -- or more needs to happen and faster. the imf and world bank's annual meeting are taking place in japan this week. and the bank of korea is cutting interest rates and growth forecasts, but policymakers are predicting a recovery ahead. yesterday woody i asked him the tebow -- they love these like bloggy looking for conflict, they love the idea that i changed the subject to talk about his tie. woody gave me the tie. not one of these outfits, and i put it on, so we came back in break and i was wearing woody's tie. not a single outfit said, wow, but look, after the break -- they're not smart enough any of these places to
. did you notice christine laguard sounding by bernanke making a point in the report that governments need to act to fix the economies. if we don't get the improvement there, we are in trouble. let me move on to talk about owens-corning, i have been covering this 20 years. i'm the son of a home builder and we bought a lot of fiberglass insulation from owens-corning over the years. it's a tricky company to cover because it is only partly tied to new home sales. they have this fabulous fiberglass insulation division that everybody sees when new houses go up in between the beams they put up. that's a big part of their business tied to new home sales but the other parts aren't tied to new home sales. so the roofing division, for example, yes, they can put new homes with roofs on them, but the big money there is replacement roofing. and in replacement roofing they have a fabulous 2011 because there were a lot of storms around the country. so business shot right up. so the margins or rather the comparisons to a 2011 don't look that good because the storms haven't been that great. they have
scared off by government concern that the deal would be stopped. that they would not be. by the way, having softbank in there as well certainly couldn't have helped things either. that complicates things. but t-mobile was a part of these discussions from what i understand when they began this summer. eventually it decided it could not bear the risk of an anti-trust review, worried given what happened with at&t it might happen again, therefore went and bought metro pcs. what's surprising to me is softbank still wanted to do it but apparently they did. these talks have continued. in fact i had been tracking what was, broadly speaking, i knew a potential deal out there. this is it. i can tell you without a doubt this has been going on for quite some time. >> softbank wants to be vodafone to sprint's verizon? conceivably? >> yeah. >> remember, it is -- verizon does not own all of verizon wireless. >> that is true. >> it would seem that sprint's stock is still undervalued on this and clearwe're may be already overvalued. >> again, we don't know price -- are sprint shareholders going to v
happens where either the government sits there and starts an antitrust -- i'm not saying apple will because they don't have it. every company has had something come up to it where they've broken it up or broken it back. at&t was broken up. microsoft -- i don't know -- >> when you're the tallest nail in the room, right, somebody's got a hammer. >> absolutely. i'm not saying that's going to happen to apple but it has happened in the past. >> you're dealing with a company that literally moves gdp, right? i mean, it's that significant, sam, what apple does. >> it and the three other tech stocks in the s&p that are the largest are larger than 200 stocks in the s&p. so you just get those three tech stocks -- those four tech stocks to do something good or bad and drags everybody else with it. >> i don't know about my sense of morality but it used to financials and it's not anymore. is that good? >> we see the rotation. it used to be the energy
. in celebration of over 75 years of our government employees insurance company, or geico...as most of you know it. ...i propose savings for everyone! i'm talking hundreds here... and furthermore.. newcaster: breaking news. the gecko is demanding free pudding. and political parties that are actual parties! with cake! and presents! ah, that was good. too bad nobody could hear me. geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. >>> the panic in apple is thick. everyone has decided it's finished, right, it's going down, down, down. every day it's going down. all i heard today is today it broke the 50-day moving average. as if somehow the company that steve jobs created is entirely independent in the end on a chart. how about this? if you don't own any, if you luck into some, you know my view about apple. it's an investment, not a trade. pe
.s. banks have famed a new stress test. not the one by the federal government, but one stress test nonetheless. among other findings here, the failing banks would have to raise an additional $25 billion in capital to achieve a passing grade. >> joining us now with exclusive details is matthew anderson. he's part of the company that conducted the study. how do you come up with this? what methodology did you use? >> i'm glad you outlined that our stress test is just that, it's our application of an economic scenario, a downside economic scenario to bank earnings and bank capital. so what we did is we took the sort of variables that the federal reserve was forecasting in their c-card stress testing of the largest banks and applied that same sort of scenario to the entire universe of banks. >> are you tougher than the feds? >> we're probably tougher in some areas. we don't have all the data at our fingertips that they have, so they have a bit of an information edge. but i think we're pretty harsh. >> now, the banks that you identified, are they small banks, are they banks that everybod
we saw around government shutdown where is they tiptoe and dance all the way up until the last minute and then get it done. we already know they're having meetings right now figuring out the end to that crisis. so i think that we're going to build it up and build it up and it's all going go away. i really think that what we're going to see with this market right now is a continuation of this slow, steady, up trend. there's no real reason right now to take it out. >> rick, what do you think? how about the 30-year treasury auction today? a lot soft, but i guess that would be expected at that yield, right? >> yeah, well, i think it was a bit soft for sure. the post-auction, all the auctions being done really gave us a big rally afterwards. the best way to get a dugout filli ined with varying personalities is to pick a new manager. i think if we pick a new manager, that will lead into the fiscal cliff being changed in a way that won't give us the big hiccup in the market. i also agree with jim though. i think what could happen is if mitt wins, there's going to be a big rally. then there's
